Tapestry of Faith: The Wi$dom Path: An Adult Program on Money, Spirit, and Life

Introduction

Part of The Wi$dom Path

Acknowledging the good that you already have in your life is the foundation for all abundance - Eckhart Tolle

This workshop begins by asking, Why is it important to talk about money? Participants explore the meaning of money in their lives and how a healthy relationship with money helps one live a fulfilling life. Participants consider the variety and complexity of individual and social dimensions of our relationships with money. They covenant to explore money issues together and to develop relationships that nurture individual and interpersonal reflective work.
